Santander Update

View here for Santander’s latest announcements.   Please remember that you can access Santander products, including semi-exclusive mortgages, through our direct to lender mortgage club which pays on completion.  Contact us for more information.  Visit Santander for Intermediaries website

Great news! We’ve simplified our full mortgage application (FMA) process in Introducer Internet to help improve our service and reduce your client’s time to offer.

  • Removed some of the questions we ask you in the residential FMA including our eligibility policy check questions to help reduce the time it takes to complete.
  • Tailored our evidence requirements outputs to provide further guidance and reduce the amount of information we need post-submission.
  • Added a new warning message to let you know when a product you’ve selected has been withdrawn.

Please note you’ll still be able to find our eligibility questions in the residential lending guide for information purposes only.

Residential self-employed applications

You’ll now be asked in Introducer Internet whether your client’s business or income was adversely affected by Covid-19?

We’ll consider your client as adversely affected where any of the below apply:

  • A business which is not currently trading or has been re-opened for less than three months.
  • Where the business has taken an SEISS, JRS grant (for limited companies) or Bounce-back, BBIL or CBIL loans in the 12 months prior to the date of application.
  • Staff have previously been furloughed due to business trading conditions in the 12 months prior to the date of application.

We’ve updated our self-employed webpage and our self-employed packaging guide.

Where your client’s business or income has been adversely affected by Covid-19, please call us before case submission so we can discuss our case packaging requirements

Changes to our product transfer range

On Tuesday 28 September, we’re making a number of changes to our product transfer range:

  • Lower rates available across the range (reductions made of between 0.05% and 0.45%).
  • New rates launched and selected rates withdrawn.
  • Some rates increased by between 0.03% and 0.20%.
  • Charge end dates will roll on by one month to 2 January and the completion deadline date will roll on to 5 February 2022.

Santander product transfer rates are personalised to each customer, so you won’t find them on sourcing systems. Please log on to our Online Mortgage Transfer Service in Introducer Internet on behalf of your client to view the rates available to them.
